If you’re a Pokemon fan, you likely enjoy drawing a few of the little critters. Even for adults, drawing is a relaxing past-time that can be rewarding in many different ways. Fans love to see some good art, even if you’re just getting started. I highly recommend you pick up a pen or a pencil in times of turmoil, seeing your creation come to life on a piece of paper is quite satisfying.
If you’re like me, you suck at drawing. Don’t worry, 99% of people do!
Pokemon are easy to draw due to their designs, a lot of them are similar so once you learn to draw a few, you’ll be able to draw many. I’ve put together the 10 easiest Pokemon to draw, this list will help you get started or just give you a nice little hobby to do in your spare time.
Shuckle’s body is obviously extremely simple, resembling a bunch of worms appearing from the shell. The latter is difficult to get right, yet those circles and shapes are awesome if you can get used to them. Learning to draw Shuckle will help you to tackle other Pokemon considerably well, the balance between a simple body and complicated shell make this Pokemon the perfect starting point.
One of the more satisfying Pokemon to draw, getting the outside gears just right is amazing. While Klink is very simple through-out, the combination of 2 of the same Pokemon joined together will teach you a great habit of repeating the same processes where needed.
Legendary Pokemon are the end-game of drawing, it’ll be a while until you can draw the likes of Celesteela but Lugia is a good choice for your early attempts. With no real complicated areas, you’ll learn how size matters and to scale certain parts accordingly. Also, this Pokemon looks so damn cool that seeing the finished product makes the time investment well worth it.
Another legendary Pokemon, one that replaces Lugia’s great power with innate cuteness. However, Victini is not the Pokemon you should dive into drawing straight away, its tails in particular are tough to get right and can mess up your entire art piece. Once you do get the hang of drawing this Pokemon, you’ll be amazed how adorable Victini is!
Don’t let all those lines and shapes intimidate you, Porygon should be on the radar of any aspiring Pokemon artist. Take it step by step, don’t over-extend yourself and you’ll be delighted with the results. A lot of Pokemon contain similar lines and Porygon is the ideal candidate to get you used to drawing them!
Start with the body and build the rest around it. Oshawott sports plenty of details from freckles to toes. These little details add character to a Pokemon, making them slightly more advanced than their more simple counter-parts. Learning to apply such details is another great learning curve, propelling your artistic skills forward.
You can’t help but love this like basic evolution Pokemon, one of the most favorited starter Pokemon in the entire series. Those 3-pronged cheeks can be a bit of a pain to apply but overall, Mudkip should be high on the list of Pokemon you mean to draw!
Don’t just copy an image you found online to draw Dratini, use its body as a starting point to drawing Pokemon in different positions. First, draw Dratini’s head and then continue down until the body is complete. This tactic is the best for drawing Pokemon free-hand in custom positions and situations. Of course, such a feat is completely optional but it’ll really set you apart from everyone else!
Perhaps a bit too simple, Marill doesn’t take long to draw and almost anyone can draw it effectively. If you do struggle to even find a starting point though, Marill should be the first or second option. Attaching the tail to the body looks easy than it is but getting it to look right will be a challenge for any newbie!
Jigglypuff is absolutely the best Pokemon to draw if you’re new!
First create a rough, perfect circle. Then move on to the ears, feet and hands/arms. Shortly after, apply the quiff and facial features. Drawing Jigglypuff doesn’t take long but this Pokemon is the starting point for anyone looking to start!
